Email Appeal to Vote For the Palm Beach Zoo in a Microsoft Contest to Win $25,000Truth!

Summary of eRumor:

You are asked to go to a Microsoft website and vote for the Palm Beach Zoo in a contest that could win a cash prize.

The Truth:

As a promotion about it’s new Zoo Tycoon 2 game, Microsoft launched a contest to choose “America’s Favorite Zoo.”
The field of candidates was narrowed to 15 and the Palm Beach Zoo was one of them.
That was before the hurricane in 2004 that caused damage to the zoo, so the writer of this email urged everyone to work more energetically for them to win.
Winners are to be announced on 11/1/04.
